​Yaya Toure scared for Man City to face Real Madrid

Yaya Toure is concerned about the possibility of Manchester City losing to Real Madrid in the Champions League.

The Citizens are taking on Real in the round of 16 of the competition, with much of their season resting on the outcome.

City are already out of reach in the Premier League, which means the Champions League is their main chance of having a successful season.

And Toure wishes they had gotten an easier draw.

"I wanted City to get Lyon or some club like that, but Real Madrid is going to be a tough game, a very, very tough game," Toure told Omnisport.

"But we will see - the first game is at the Bernabeu and then it is [at the] Etihad.

"Real Madrid could knock us straight out. They could, they really could, because we expect Real Madrid to be in the quarter-finals, the semi-finals and now they face City.

"I'm a little scared to be honest."
